Sunday, July 12 2020 - 4:00 PM to Sunday, July 12 2020 - 5:00 PM
We invite you to join us for our second virtual Christmas Institute worship service: Sunday, July 12th from 4PM-5PM via Zoom. The theme for this second virtual worship, "Finding Peace in an Anxious World," is drawn from the 2020 Spiritual Growth Study by staff of the Urban Village Church, uses the book of Proverbs and “The Serenity Prayer'' as a guide to help Christians find their way through anxiety, worry, and fear and move towards God's peace that surpasses all understanding. This book is one of the resources for the United Methodist Women. The speaker for the Young People's virtual worship is Ellen Dizon, a Deaconess in our California-Nevada Conference who is one of the lay leaders at Pinole United Methodist Church.
This service will center around conversations regarding mental health in youth and young adults, reclaiming the light of which we are worthy, and finding peace in an ever anxious world. During the ongoing fight for justice, our faith requires action—our LOVE requires action. But to sustain it within us, it asks that we also give ourselves permission to rest, recover, and heal. We want to remind you that wherever you are on your journeys of becoming, you are not alone.
